Following his success playing British Theatre maverick Ken Campbell in the recent sell-out production of KEN, at Hampstead Theatre (an interrupted monologue by and with the intrepid Terry Johnson) Jeremy Stockwell offers this new day-long workshop, inspired by the curious delights and cosmic capers of national treasure Ken Campbell.
DO YOU KEN? will help you to commit to the present (in the audition room, on stage or in front of the camera) - it will help you to let go the 'actors baggage', heightening your creative awareness, your 'presence' and your confidence. This in turn will help you to build greater truth, trust, self-confidence and joy in your work.
Whether you know Ken's work or not, it doesn't matter - this day opens the doors of perception, potential, and possibility. It invites you to step into the unknown and find, channel, develop and sustain your own Inner Ken!
The course does not directly use any of Ken's material, or work. Its concern is to help you discover and generate your own.
DO YOU KEN? will have you thinking in new directions and Kenning for all you are worth. It will also help you create conditions by which you can shift yourself and others into more sustained and successful creative engagements on stage and off.
Bring a hat, an open mind, and leave what you think you know at the door!
